Characters ✓ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ✓ Bev Thomas Download Á A Good Enough Mother 102 Tingly Caroline's twin brother Tom has disappeared and has had no contact with anyone for two years Ruth's fragile son has always been sensitive and anxious the opposite of his cheerful and resilient sister She cannot give up hope of finding him but feels she is living a kind of half life waiting for him to return Then Ruth is assigned a new patient a young man who bears a striking resemblance to Tom Ruth is determined to. Sometimes novels are categorised as psychological thrillers but the psychological element is weak that is not the case with A Good Enough Mother The psychological pull of this novel was so intense I flew through it in no time at all Not only did it thrill my mind but the psychology on display within the novel was gripping Seeing elements of Ruth s work with clients in the trauma unit but also seeing how her son s disappearance affected her work with her clients was expertly done When I finished this novel my first thought was the author must be in the field of psychology to have written so intelligently so realistically on the subject And it was so Thomas was a clinical psychologist for many years and now works as an organisational consultant in mental health You could go so far as to say this book is written by an expert it certainly read expertlyRuth Hartland was a very well developed and complex character one who was laid bare to us in this novel Thomas took this novel to dark places but kept it realistic this novel really does read as Ruth s story But it also does a fantastic job of exploring human emotions and the need for containment In its most simplistic form containment is a patient projecting their unmanageable feelings onto a therapist who in turn reflects them back to the patient but in a way which these feelings become manageable and tolerable for the patient And if you re familiar with Bion s work about the good enough mother then you ll know why this was novel was perfectly titledWhen a novel draws out the mental health nurse in me it gets bonus points A Good Enough Mother gets all the stars Please don t think you have to have traumamental health experience to enjoy this novel because that s not the case at all I just wanted to highlight the intelligence of this novelA psychological drama which expertly explored the relationship between a therapist and her patients and how vulnerable both can be in this relationship The tension the thrills the uncertainty the emotion the power of loss perfectly paced this novel had it all But most of all this novel was human no tricks or gimmicks instead a well written literary piece of fiction that will keep your mind engaged from beginning to endMy thanks to the publisher Faber Faber for providing me with a copy of this title
